Burgermeister Meisterburger.

   Last night Adam and I were watching perennial holiday favorite Santa Claus is Comin To Town...one of the wonderful Rankin-Bass stop motion Christmas specials.  One of the most charming things about these Rankin-Bass movies are the voice talents used...among them Disney Legend Paul Frees.
   I won't go into the extensive work Frees did for Disney...because if you read this blog you probably already know all about it.  Frees had the uncanny ability to change his voice to suit whatever project he was working on.  But that my friends, is not what we are talking about here. 
   Arguably, Ludwig Von Drake is Frees's most famous and endearing character.

more after the jump...




   The only problem is, Ludwig's voice is recycled clearly as Burgermeister Meisterburger....so much so, that I was pretty distracted.  :)


   Thought everyone would enjoy that.  Frees also does the voice of JUST ABOUT EVERYONE ELSE in the movie.  Happy Holidays all.
